If you need help with a drug or alcohol addiction in Urmston, our team at Asana Lodge can help you. We offer personalised rehab treatment programmes at our residential centre to get you back on track.
Drug and alcohol misuse is a serious issue throughout the UK. According to the charity Alcohol Change UK, alcohol misuse is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15–49-year-olds in the UK, and the fifth-biggest risk factor across all ages. 
The number of drug-related deaths recorded in England and Wales in 2020, meanwhile, was the highest since these statistics started being collected in 1993. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) pointed out that many of these would have been from 2019, due to delays in reporting, and that the majority occurred before the pandemic, which may have only fuelled the problem. 
And this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many people whose lives are blighted by drugs or alcohol in different ways. Addiction can wreck relationships and tear through families. It can have an impact at work, ruin your social life and eventually become the only thing you really care about. It’s never too late to seek help though. Even if you’ve tried and failed to take a hold of your drinking or drug use, addiction treatment could help you to break the vicious cycle of addiction once and for all.

Addiction Treatment in Urmston
Admitting that you have a problem and seeking help to overcome it is always a positive step forward. Any kind of rehab treatment programme can be valuable but we firmly believe that a stay in a private residential rehab for a tailored programme is by far the most effective way of tackling a serious addiction problem.
There are a number of reasons for this. First of all, rehab takes you away from the stresses and triggers associated with your everyday life and regular drug or alcohol consumption. You will be in a safe, calm environment with no access to drugs or alcohol and surrounded by supportive, non-judgemental professionals and other residents who are on their own recovery journeys.
This is the best environment to undertake the tailored programme of evidence-based treatments provided during rehab – from a medically assisted detox to a wide range of therapies designed to address the psychological aspects and root causes of your drug or alcohol addiction.
What is the Process of Rehabilitation?
Rehab is not a single thing and, while it comprises a number of different treatments, it is bigger than the sum of its parts. A good rehab programme should be a holistic process that addresses the physical and psychological dependence on drugs and alcohol as well as any behavioural issues that initially led to the addiction.
In order to get the most from rehab, you will have to commit to participating fully in this programme and be honest about your behaviour and addiction. This can be painful but it will be worth it in the long run if it enables you to leave your harmful and destructive behaviours behind and move into a more positive life free from drugs and alcohol.
Treatments Available in Rehab
Most stays in rehab incorporate a period of drug or alcohol detoxification, which is when you process the drugs and alcohol already in your system. A supervised detox is the safest and most effective way to go through this vital part of the recovery journey and in some cases, medications may be available to help you get through any withdrawal symptoms.
You will also participate in a number of group and individual therapies, which may include techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and complementary or holistic therapies such as art therapy.
At Asana Lodge, we also offer specialist dual diagnosis treatments to treat any mental health issues that may be co-existing alongside your addiction and substance misuse problems. This is actually a very common situation and it’s important to treat both aspects as they are often related in various ways.
In some cases an existing mental health condition can trigger or exacerbate substance misuse, ultimately leading to addiction. In other cases substance misuse can contribute to mental health problems and often it is a complex combination of all these things.
Life After Rehab
Your recovery journey does not end the moment the rehab door closes behind you. Recovery from addiction is an ongoing process. Your time in rehab will provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to maintain it, but there are still likely to be challenging times ahead.
We provide 12 months of free aftercare to provide the vital support you need in the time following your stay and there are other support groups and networks to help you continue your journey way into the future.
How Do You Get Referred to Private Rehab?
There are a number of ways of getting referred to rehab. If you know you have a problem and are seeking to do something about it, then congratulations! This is one of the most positive steps you will ever take and you can get in contact with us directly.
We also know that many people are not ready to take that first step immediately, however. It can be a daunting prospect and many people with addictions are also in denial as to the extent of their problem.
We also offer a family referral for people who are concerned about their loved ones and even an employer referral service that can work with HR teams when addiction and substance misuse issues are having an impact in the workplace.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to detox at home?
Going through detox without any support is a path that some people choose to do. The effects of withdrawal on a person are impossible to predict and there can be complications. Withdrawal symptoms such as seizures and delirium tremens can be dangerous and require medical assistance, which is why it is safest to do your drug or alcohol detox at a rehab facility.
What is a medically assisted detox?
A medically assisted drug or alcohol detox is the process of slowly and safely removing the harmful toxins from your body caused by substances. Prescription medication can be administered to help ease the worst of the withdrawal symptoms you will experience when detoxing. It is a safe process and gives you a much better chance at long-term recovery, rather than going cold turkey alone.
How long does rehab last?
A typical programme with us at Asana Lodge usually takes around 28 days – that programme includes drug or alcohol detox. After this period, you will be physically sober and hopefully feel ready to return to your normal life drug and alcohol free. Some people can afford to stay in rehab longer and programmes can run up to 12 weeks in some facilities. What is important is that you pick the programme that suits your circumstances and recovery goals.
